back out of a trade deal with the e.u. the agreement was shunned by the ukrainian leaders during. a key summit in vilnius this week maybe you officials had hoped that would strengthen his ties with the union and the president's lack of movement on the issue has only infuriated the protesting crowds even more details now with artie's alexy got assurance. it's only. greece. spain. i. thought should go. ukraine a similar picture looks are deceiving while a number of european countries has been protesting against brussels policy ukraine is probably the only one where people are taking to the streets in tens of thousands to support the idea of your integration became a good thing yet we deserved to be in europe. to deal would have allowed us to get

better education in europe but this was not about being in the e.u. joining the union was not even on the table at the two hundred page blueprint of the agreement never said anything about a visa free regime and we are hugely isn't about that my wife can go to poland and buy a lot of food for just ten which is just over a dollar that's twice as much as i can buy here for a hundred degrees. but the government was concerned that ukraine's domestic products would be swamped by cheap or easy you goods the worst case scenario could have been factory closures and a catastrophe unemployment rate and brussels was offering no compensation for any potential economic losses despite that ukraine's leadership has hinted a deal may still materialize in march next year that would mean a longer winter on the streets for the angry crowds were refusing to go home they want the president's head before they do alexy russia's t.r.t. reporting from kiev ukraine and protesters believe the country's leadership hijacked their future by leaving the e.u.

trade deal on the scrapheap although warned that a hasty agreement could devastate the country's economy people still want and as kiev looks to possibly revisit the agreement next year ati's paul scott has been finding out exactly what went so wrong this time. it's. a moment of on power allowed access it's crazy and president which comes face to face with a huge lead is for the first time since stilling one historic trade deal the whole thing caught on camera i think it was her sister at the far. right if it is the us i. it's clear that k.s. decision to hold for seedings has rankled a unit is flowing in a haze of negotiations the e.u. senses outside influence we have to set aside short term political calculations.
4:05 am
and we may not give in to external pressure not the least from russia. because it says the financial deal also isn't large enough to prevent damage to ukraine's flailing economy of course neither ukrainian businesses nor the government have this amount of money or will have any time soon that's why ukraine is not ready to take responsibilities is not capable of fulfilling yet oh so where does this leave the situation ukraine's proposals for trilateral talks with russia were rejected by the e.u. brussels finances may not allow them to increase the offer to kiev look at the european union massive run column employment throughout the course of the entire union they have a euro currency project which is a fiasco realistically the only thing the european union couldn't try to do is keep the blame storming anybody russia who cares because the european union is
4:06 am
ultimately falling apart at the seams so a you depart vilnius contemplating what might have been despite courting president they simply seemed unable to offer him a deal that was tempting enough scots ulti vilnius lithuania. and as ukraine says no to the e.u. many within the bloc itself are saying no to its central policy during nationalists from belgium have invited right wing movements from all across the continent to talk about how to fight liberalism now here at r.t. international we spoke to one a political activist who is taking part in the so-called we are the youth conference he says unemployment is the main driving force behind the rise of extremists. italy greece spain and portugal finding a job is not that easy these days so of course people go looking for especially
4:07 am
young people go looking and searching for solutions and i think that there are some movements that can give these solutions to the problems today that the capitalist and liberal system isc have cost the governments over the european union that dates all to the don't care about jobs of young people so we can see that people are looking for alternatives we can not say that it's a fact a nationalist revolution we can just say that it's very logical thing to happen it's a logical thing when people are left behind as they starts to organize themselves and if they start to think. it's r t international kuantan m obey may have been a source for a cia double agents media reports claim the secret service turned prisoners into spies and sent them home with the promise of freedom safety for their families and millions in cash now according to the claims an installation was discovered very
4:08 am
near the controversial facility known as penny lane supposedly used for training the recruits it said the cia chose the person who's considered the most dangerous for the mission now there's been no concrete proof provided for these claims however former pentagon security analyst michael maloof he says such double agents would have no way to go back to because they'd be enemies in their own homes or any exposure at any time like this of any secret program if there is one is always damaging. the question then is what is the relevance you send these guys back what tangible basis do you have and in the follow up and actually recruiting and i think that's a serious question but to even have a revelation that such a program might even exist it could be very damaging to these individuals and i doubt that those who are in guantanamo now would really be able to go back without some suspicion been cast upon them in guantanamo bay prison the more guilty you are
4:09 am
the more chances you have to get out as a double agent that's the claim of colonel morris davis a former guantanamo bay prison chief prosecutor. i would assume like in many organized crime cases sometimes you gotta make a deal with the devil to try to get someone further up the food chain i can tell you call some consternation from my prosecutors because in some cases we are asking them to prosecute people for war crimes and there's any way that you want to prosecute the lieutenant at this level but we've let his colonel go which created this kind of paradox on top of my where if you were a big enough fish you potentially got a free ticket home and a wad of cash to take with you if you weren't you could potentially get prosecuted and if you're in the lower category the people who have been cleared are still at guantanamo and the detention so the more guilty you are may have been better for you. are still to come here on our team is a miracle of life we've made palestinian women who have managed to start families

4:14 am
course the government will release him if and only if there is significant pressure from behind allies meaning the united states of the united. and i'm. in absence of that pressure i think the government will still trying to come in prison in line with their campaign of you know trying to prevent any sort of dissent or create any sort of safe space for dissent we saw dealy videos of nighttime bombardments of villages in behind with tear gas these are areas where there's no protests whatsoever going on the government just comes in and fires massive amounts of tear gas to punish citizens for expressing dissent or protests so we're not seeing the use of tear gas and behind to disperse violent rioters as much as we're seeing it to punish as a weapon of collective punishment we've seen the government try to hold the so-called national dialogue with the opposition but you can't really have this dialogue when there's there's so many political prisoners and representatives of

their families but five babies have been born this way and eighteen women are pregnant. bringing a baby into this work in spite of the fact that his father is in the jews now in this prison is a form of resistance. police here are teaming with bank. and are to internationals coming to live from moscow a wave of earthquakes in the state of texas has triggered suggestions they were manmade independent studies have shown that injecting explosive fluids into oil and gas wells known as fracking could ultimately be the culprit here now the latest rumble was a three point six magnitude quake in fact the strongest in several years and the process is allowing texas to free up a hard to reach resources therefore it's proving a quite a draw for the big oil and gas corporations a former mayor in texas calvin tillman he believes harming the environment for cash could end up having irreversible side effects. some pretty good that it shows the
4:19 am
injection wells which all of the fracking noise is deposited in they have been linked to these earthquakes and i think you have to be the least to not think that all of things going on underground is going to have you know the long term stability. of the earth at the legislative level the oil and gas industry has a significant influence probably more in the state of texas than they do in any other state in the united states around the world the impact this is has i mean you know by the time that you. hear the noise and have the earthquakes and smelling the odors in your water has methane in it is too late at that point and so you know the damage that is that is going to be non is going to go on for many many many years and it's not something that you're going to be able to undo. parts of cairo now to get some other global headlines in brief the city being shaken by antigovernment

protests resulting in at least eighty six arrests for security forces used tear gas while the crowds used stones but demonstrations followed days of defiance of a new law which bans gatherings without government approval recent arrests of many activists have also added fuel to the fire of public anger about of the military's grip on power. whether to erect separatist group has said it's ending a cease fire that was agreed with the government in june following clashes between the demonstrations at some of protests in the capital bamako on thursday people demanded french troops leave the country in the meantime though paris is maintaining more than three thousand soldiers in mali is following a joint operation with local groups against the rebels in january. i don't lease three people feared dead dozens reportedly injured after a police helicopter crashed into
4:21 am
a packed. pub in glasgow there were no official confirmation from the scottish authorities one hundred twenty people were in the building when the chopper with three people on board impacted the roof and several are actually still said to be trapped inside right now though not clear what caused the crash. now germany makes some of the world's fastest cars it's not surprising really when they have the world's fastest roads speeds on parts of the autobahn network are dictated simply by how far you can push the pedal to the metal as artie's peter all of a reports there's one big foot right now waiting to a stump on the brakes. but when you go past the sign this is one twenty with a line through it the gloves are off baby you can drive you can drive really government is off your back in germany and you can drive the mayor says drive as fast as you walk is that. it's the country right now throughout the world for its.
4:22 am
unlimited speeds germany could be said to fall foul of the regulations that could see drivers of the country paying high performance cars limited to a maximum of about one hundred fifty kilometers an hour the planned clampdown would see stated with a device that automatically applies the brakes whenever a car exceeds the speed limit in the area the idea is to increase highway safety thirty thousand people die every year on roads but come on you five trips on the notion that they slow down to save lives statistics also show a major accidents etc not on the autobahn this is on the streets offside the autobahn and this is already very limited. and for some it's a clear indicator of the european commission overtaking which should not see the problem at the moment is that many of those rules are being made by the commission
4:23 am
and are not being subject to democratic accountability in the european parliament and that seems to me is is the source of a lot of the frustration and tensions in countries a decision on whether to move ahead with the idea is expected in the new year german drivers however have already made up their minds that it will kill the joy of driving. i am against speed limit it will cost us jobs but all the wall be will not allow that to happen people will fall asleep at that speed the whole reason we built beautiful roads was to drive on them properly it's going to be a tough one for the e.u. to come. germans that their speed should be in the hands of brussels now till. i was dxed the germans. to the french or roast beef to the british. not things they going to want to give up control of easily. to all of us.
4:24 am
and all to international is coming to you live from moscow i'm rori sushi thank you for joining us today. here in half an hour's time but coming up next transgender tribulations a special documentary coming your way. i hate to be a downer but i really think the olympics have lost all meaning in the past when there was the cold war it was like a battle between two ideologies taking place in the abstract and the one nine hundred thirty six olympics nazi pseudo science their self-proclaimed superiority was put on trial for the whole world to see and spent the olympics having the majority of the countries on earth participating they're now horribly horribly
4:25 am
bland one could argue that they have become a great way for countries to show off their acts used to build up some infrastructure by i think this is a big misconception let's look back to the two thousand a lympics in beijing china is really developed in the last twenty years but the olympics really teach us anything about this country with a radically different political system or anything about their ancient culture or the way they think or the way they live no nothing at all all we saw were some flags and some pandas that rather unique stadium which was mostly the work of a swiss company yeah i hate to say it by think the olympic flame is kind of burnt out over the years although i have to admit that saying the torch in the space was kind of neat i think that when and if the world ever becomes an ideological battle ground again then the olympics will become worth watching but for now it's just generic sports from generic countries a generic stadiums but that's just my opinion.
4:26 am
there's one thing that i still can't understand i don't want to ruin your good mood . but i have this one question what are you doing this all for. listen to me you had everything respect authority you gave them all up and decided to go your way but what for. it was a way to inform he tried to restrain himself and find his place in society in spite

4:28 am
a non-person and i can't find a job lawyer as you don't even believe it's really my possibility that. he was substantiate your claim with a number of medical reports could you present them to me so far you have only presented a medical report from professor going to check us clinic you should or so i thought that report would be enough if i didn't think i'd need anything else if you referred to it as a medical statement than you need to have a document proving this clinic really is a magic oregon has ation authorized to issue such reports. i don't have such a document will you be able to present it yes i think so when will you be able to present it like concerned exact date i'll have to submit a request in five days ten how many about ten probably it's hard to say exactly the cases are joined to the ninth of september if the clinic refuses to
4:29 am
provide you with the necessary documents the court all sign an inquiry. didn't it surprise you that they claim you could north a request from the yes it did i don't know why they didn't reply it's so strange i can't comment i don't know what or if i had the opportunity i would have done it myself what are you going to do next. we're not going to call the clinic and the local registry office i'll try to explain the situation because it's delaying the surgery.
